The Worst Virus of All

Writes Mike Rozeff:

The worst virus of all, which is highly contagious and which disables the mental processes of its victims, is worship of NATION. This equates to worship of HOMELAND. It results in worship of BORDERS and worship of the deified nation’s MILITARY…

…As with the other aggregative terms that manifest the virus, so does PUBLIC GOOD also show that the virus has taken root. The moment one supports this idea as an appropriate political and social goal, one is apt to be led into support of the State. By the way, both major parties strongly support the nationalistic, communistic and public good ideologies that undergird the State. If the State is an ideological virus, then it is currently being nurtured by these ideas.
